We told you Apple CarPlay was coming to BMWs last year. Now it’s confirmed on at least one model. According to a forum post on Bimmerpost showing a leaked price guide, Carplay will be available on the updated X5 and X6M starting this September. Given the similarity between the models it’s presumed that the standard X5 and X6 will get this update as well.
The update will consist of the a 10.25″ screen (the same size as the current one) with touch-screen support. In other words the X5 and X6 will get the iDrive 5.0 that the 7 Series debuted with last year.
What does this mean for the rest of the BMW range? We’d expect iDrive 5.0 with CarPlay to be a rolling update that will likely encompass all products within the next 12-18 months.
